Hampton has to be wondering why it took so long to start a WPIAL gymnastics program. In just their third year of existence, the Talbots captured their second title at the WPIAL championships held at Moon Area High School. It was back-to-back titles this season for the Hampton program that is now two for three in winning titles in its existence, what surely is the best championship winning percentage in a program's history among WPIAL sports.
Hampton tallied 144.250 points to fend off the host Tigers who had 141 points. North Allegheny, a team who has won some back-to-back titles of its own, was third with 139.425 points. North Allegheny freshman Alicia Hinnebusch captured the all-around title in the advanced division with an all-around score of 37.475 points, she was third in the vault, fifth in the uneven bars, second in the floor exercise and first on the balance beam.
Hampton rode a wave of strong routines in the floor exercise, parallel bars and vault to overcome lackluster performances on the balance beam. Leading the way for Hampton was Katrina Jones who placed second in the all-around competition with 36.975 points. Her teammate, Ali Sullivan was fifth overall with 35.975 points.
